I own a 98 Ranger with the 1 minute-to-pass 2.5L. I used to have a 98 Durango with the 5.9L and twin turbo. Needless to say, I slid into somebody due to the ground having oil on it. No money for me, truck completely totaled, and getting completely f-ed over. Lol. Basically....I miss my fast as truck. I know there is tons of stuff out there on this stuff, but I'm looking to possibly do an older 5.0 swap or an 89 5.8L bronco swap. My bronco has no title, but she is an off road beast. Looking to convert it to diesel, so I'll have 5.8L guts laying around. My 5.8L has tons of power and I am thinking if its stuck into a lighter weight car/truck, it'll show more. Is this something that sounds like a good idea? I also have 88 Lincoln 5.0L parts laying around. I'm looking to spend as little as possible, so using what I have is a plus. Any advice would be grand.

Possibly have a 99 5.0L explorer from gf's brother. Still working on details, so I'll kinda leave it out for now.
